Wouldn't bother me, once you complete the campaign it's unlikely you'll want to do it again any time soon, and most people only play MP anyway. I'll be getting it for PC though, I just need to find the cash for a GTX 580 :D

Nice! I would also be getting it for the PC, was it not for the fact that I doubt my laptop would be able to run it properly. So Xbox for me then...

as long as single player is long and is good, and multiplayer is good, battlefield has never been very good for multi play in my opinion, so much potential ruined by poor design and very poor sportsmanlike players

You realize that campaign in Battlefield is a recent development, right?

The entire series is designed SOLELY around multiplayer. The campaigns are incidental and to market the game to all six people who haven't got a connection capable of playing online yet.

As for poor design...What game are you playing? Battlefield 2 probably had some of the best level design, spacing and tactical variety a game has ever had. Yes, Bad Company and BC2 were lacklustre, but that's what you get when you try to market something primarily to the console crowd. Luckily, Battlefield 3 has been designed properly (In respect to the origins of the series) and ported TO consoles, not from.

As for sportsmanship, I hardly see how the attitude of the players is the fault of the developers. Not to mention that sportsmanship is overrated. Camping, grenade spam and BMing in global chat are part of the metagame, and it's the duty of a player who doesn't like this to adapt to it if it bothers them, not the other way around.

no its not, sportsmanship lets everyone enjoy the game, being a douche spoils it for everyone, a 40k forum should have a perfect understanding of a douche spoiling things for everyone I'd of thought, plenty of them after all

1) You can hope it's good, but it's sure as hell objectively the least important part of a series that has always had its roots in multiplayer

2) There's always a minority

3) My point was that the devs have no control over the players, so you can't hold that against the game.

4) If someone's crying and whining and calling 'unsportsmanship' because they're too bad at a team game to get some coherence and a tight counter attack to defeat whatever's happening, they deserve to lose. While this may not be exactly what you're talking about, it's a major point in the Battlefield series. Example and fact: Only whiny little bitches complain about 'baserape' instead of actively doing something about the people pinning them in.

That might seem cold, but I'm fully of the belief that if someone can't take something for themselves in a game, they don't deserve it.

I was quite surprised to read this, as I've always felt that BF has some of the best multiplayer around. I was disappointed with Bad Company 2's single player, not that it was bad but that it had gone from open-world levels to COD style linear, but the multiplayer was still excellent. The different classes with unlocks, objective based gameplay, squads, and different vehicles gave it a much deeper and much more fun element than other online shooters.

Also, I've never found it to be particularly unsportsman like, in Bad Company One you would get team killed sometimes if you were using artillery that someone else wanted, but it wasnt common and certainly no worse than other games.

On the other hand I usually play with a squad of friends which defiantly makes it much more fun, as you actually communicate, Cod is much easier to jump into and play alone or with mates.

If the games main focus is online play, and the online community sucks, then the game sucks. FPS games tend to have the worst online communities among all other games. The general player base runs very hot and cold, when they win they're "the best playas evah" and when the lose it's because of "haxs" or "cheese." They will mock players openly with whatever language they feel like, until that player starts beating them, at which point then shut up like nothings happened.
